I thought my miracle had finally arrived. The iPhone. A contraption that would combine about 6 different devices into one and sync seamlessly with my Mac. And allow me to check my email from anywhere.
But I am not so sure.
The geeks at the office have been doing their research for me (because all the big words confuse me), and there is concern about whether the internet access that will come through the phone (when I am away from WiFi, which when you think about it, is when I really need it) will be acceptable. That the Net is all abuzz that the iPhone is more of an “entertainment phone” and not really a “business phone.” That the email and calendaring functionality is not beefy enough compared to the iTunes capabilities. Godammit, I want it all!
The other main complaint seems to be the thing it too slick. Like slippery. Like it keeps slipping out of the testers hands and crashing on the floor. But I am sure some 3rd party vendor already has a neon green gel casing in the works to cover that.
I am mainly concerned about the internet access thing. Because helllllloooooo. I want to be able to do blog posts from anywhere! Inspired in the ladies bathroom at the mall? Post! What good is this expensive contraption that locks me in to AT&T for two years if I can’t pee and post at the same time???
June 29th. We’ll see.
